Peter Kivy, my old friend and colleague from Rutgers, was the nicest person you could wish to meet: funny, civilized, humane, generous, kindly, and a real friend. We used to drive back to Manhattan together after a long day at Rutgers and have delightful conversations on the New Jersey Turnpike. But he had a sharp and acerbic wit and a strong moral sense: nothing wishy- washy about Peter! He also told terrific jokes. Above all, he was a serious and accomplished philosopher. The last time I saw him was in Miami a year or so ago, where we sat and talked on my back porch like old times (much lamentation about the state of things).
